Open-water swimming is one of the fastest-growing sports in the British Isles. It beats the pants – or the Speedos – off doing lengths in the municipal pools that proliferated after the Second World War. As guru figure Roger Deakin wrote in his popular book Waterlog, river swimming provides an escape from "endlessly turning back on myself like a tiger pacing its cage". It's an opportunity to discover your inner tiger (no, not that one), to get back to nature or, in the case of skinny-dipping, back to naturism. As it did for the Victorians and Edwardians, it provides respite from rampant industrialisation. Unless, that is, you swallow a mouthful of factory discharge while getting your feet tangled up in a shopping trolley.
